Tim Burton is a director known for creating an array of eccentric characters that populate his macabre films. In fact, it’s common for him to build his films around his characters – think how many Burton films are named after someone featured in it – making many of his works feel like character pieces.

Even those of his films that are adaptations contain Burton’s own spin on the source characters. Usually Burton’s own spin creates outcasts, misunderstood by the world around them. It’s true of household names such as Edward Scissorhands and Batman to his take on director Ed Wood. Arguably, as they are more personal to the man, these are the 10 best of Tim Burton’s weird and wonderful creations.

Oh, before you read on, you should probably prepare to see Johnny Depp’s face a few times over the coming pages.
